Whenever I am accelerate and the car is around 1700 to 2200 rpm it will jerk and the check engine light comes on. Sometimes the car will shut off altogether while driving, and sometimes when I stop.
Do you
have the same problem?

The problem will require the power train control modules to be scanned for stored faults as a first step. A 1993 325 BMW can be scanned with Autologic or with the factory scan tool/system called a GT-1 or it's clones. If I had to guess, I'd start with the air mass sensor.

Thanks, I am going to do that this week sometime. Are they generally easy and inexpensive to replace?
